It is all about Switzerland today as the on-line public voting has begun for their National Selection process for 2014. Below are the links that you need to follow to vote for your favorite songs.
159 songs are looking for your votes. The on-line voting is open until November 30th. The Top 9 songs in this public vote will be then judged by an expert panel. The public and jury voting will carry both 50% each.
You can translate the site into German, French, Italian and English once you register. The SRF platform to vote on can be accessed here. You must first register in order to vote, but you can do this through your Facebook page. Those nice Swiss people have thought of everything!
There has been a lot of interest from across Europe in this year’s Swiss selection despite the drop in the number of entrants to SRF this year. We have profiled some of the entrants for the Swiss National Selection – From former Eurovision Contestants, to UK X-Factor Singers, to UK Eurovision produced Songs, To West End Singers to Northern Irish Singer/Songwriters.
The Swiss selection has it all this year from “Hopera” to Pop to Rock to Novelty songs.
The last time Switzerland won the Eurovision, it was with the then unknown Canadian singer Celine Dion. We all know what happened on that night in Dublin in 1988.
